This place has a wonderful atmosphere. Perfect for a date night, or just a casual lunch alone like I had. The mood is set by the lighting as soon as you enter the room, and you feel comfortable in the clean and trendy layout of the resturant. A beautiful waterfall sits outside the main window and creates a calming Feng shui. I ordered the lobster roll, with cajun fries and a side of broccoli rabe. The roll was toasted to perfection and had a wonderful blend of corn, citrus aioli, and giant chunks of lobster laid upon it. The fries were perfectly crispy and well seasoned, a little spicy, but just enough. The side of broccoli rabe was cooked with toasted pine nuts, yellow raisins and sliced garlic. The raisins threw me off at first however their sweetness balances out the bitterness in the broccoli rabe perfectly, a pleasant surprise. The staff was very kind and accommodating and this is definitely a place I will be returning. Highly recommend!

Amazing view of the waterfall while you are eating at the best Mediterranean restaurant in Fairfield county what else can you ask for. Fresh food, great service, and great selection of wine.

Went there twice. Waiters are foodies and offer helpful insights into what dish one may like and what would go well with it - meaning, they actually give you advice, they don't just say "oh if you l like chicken, then you will really like xyz". Atmosphere is very well done. There is enough space between tables, lighting is good, they did a lot of things right there.

One item worth pointing out - when they serve champagne or sparkling wine, it comes out at a nice and crisp temperature, which is a leg up on many other places around here which serve sparkling wine at 50 degrees or even worse.

We've had meat, chicken, fish and scallops here, all were very good. They offer more variety and just more interesting food than so many places nearby.

The desserts are eclectic, such as the home made donuts or the Tiramisu.

The waiters are not just knowledgeable, but they are very attentive and pay attention to detail. This makes for a pleasant experience.

I had dinner here on short notice, and it was ok. I wish I had just stayed in and ordered Thai Spice.

The Good: I got the flat iron steak which was cooked perfectly - very tender, very delicious. Also, the make a pretty good Manhattan.

The Bad: Lack of seasoning seems to define most food cooked in Connecticut. The main course was no different - it was cooked meat. Some ground pepper helped a bit.

The Ugly: Not sure iv tasted a worse bread puddle bag dessert. It was tasteless adorned with bitter blueberries. I love bread pudding so this was a disappointment.

Very nicely designed restaurant ambiance okay noise level good as long as a train doesn't come by. The hotel/restaurant is overlooks the train tracks and a waterfall. It's an expensive evening for an average meal. Service is good, menu choices okay & a very overpriced wine list e.g. Sonoma Cutrer Chardonnay retails for $22.00 in a wine shop it's $60.00 on their list.
Overall it's okay nothing special.
